What kind of Flash file system do you use?
Is it the same one with what embedded Linux uses?

The handhelds.org bootldr will boot a NetBSD kernel from flash. I use
it on a SA1110 based webpad. The interface between the bootloader
and the kernel needs to match the cats code, so it won't load
an hpcarm kernel.
The evbarm ports use redboot as a bootloader.
I have some local modifications to the md driver to allow it to point
at an area of flash. The filesystem that is stored there is read only
